FamilySearch facts and figures

Did you know FamilySearch currently has 3.2 billion searchable names on the website and 429 million names were indexed in 2012. There are 222 digital cameras are currently operating worldwide, capturing images of genealogical documents for FamilySearch and digitization of the records stored in the granite vault above Salt Lake City is now at 37% of the 31 billion images.
I was recently asked to assist someone with finding information on ancestors from Downpatrick in County Down, Ireland, and I found a wealth of information on FamilySearch – just what they needed. Have you looked at FamilySearch since the website was revamped? After all this is one free source of information!
